Inspired by...Peet

Before I share this week's featured artist I want to be sure to thank each and everyone of you for your overwhelming love, support, and incredible comments regarding my announcement on Saturday. I was truly taken aback by your kindness and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Okay, enough mushy stuff; right? :) This week's featured artist is the AMAZINGLY talented Peet Roeven! I love everything Peet creates. Her attention to detail is astounding and her cards are true masterpieces! Here's our first inspiration card from Peet: I love the dimension and paper piecing of the butterflies. I also really love the subtle texture of the white cardstock paired with the pretty blue. Finally, Peet's stitching takes this card to another level!

Now before I show my take on Peet's card I just had to tell you I have discovered that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Markers and Penny Black Brushstroke stamps are a match made in heaven! I've used them both to create my card.





I was especially inspired by Peet's fresh color scheme and blue and white background panels on her card. Here's my take: I began by coloring directly on my stamp (Penny Black 4043K efflorescence) with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Markers. I stamped this on white cardstock and distressed the background using Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy and Broken China Distress Ink. Next I inked the script stamp (Penny Black 1999L) with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to stamp directly on the floral panel, removing some ink with a baby wipe before stamping. The white background was embossed (Sizzix Texture Fade Embossing Folder) and then lightly distressed with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Card base created from Penny Black Mix and Match Cardstock and sentiment by Penny Black (30-014).

Thanks again for stopping by! See you tomorrow with another AWESOME card by Peet! HUGS!
